Taking Time

  • Interest Level: Kindergarten - Grade 2   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Taking time to listen to a bird’s song on the breeze. Taking time to gather up the blossom dancing free. Taking time to imagine the deep sounds of the sea. Taking time to cherish you . . . and cherish me.

This poem is inspired by principles of mindfulness and invites children around the world to experience the wonders of nature and home.
